2017 Lincoln MKX vs. 2017 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKX than in the Audi Q5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lincoln MKX and the Audi Q5.

Convenience
The Audi Q5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKX, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lincoln MKX is somewhat more expensive than the Audi Q5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Lincoln MKX and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKX is a little wider than the Audi Q5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lincoln MKX, which is slightly longer than the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln MKX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Audi Q5.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKX greatly out-muscles the Audi Q5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKX and the Audi Q5. The Lincoln MKX has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Audi Q5.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q5.
